Episode 3 opens up with gratitude for May Flowers and friendship, soul-excavating writing, and surprise forgiveness. Also, I talk about #KnowThisPsychosis, my lil instagram project that you can find @JadeLenier to raise awareness of less-talked about mental illness experiences. My anxiety is slightly soothed by a positive.news story I found this week talking about how the private sector is stepping up to the plate by reducing carbon emissions, even though our president is trying to turn the planet into Death Valley. https://www.positive.news/2017/economics/27043/regardless-trump-us-businesses-speeding-toward-low-carbon-world/ I talked about the two squads that I have in my mind, and how one of them has banded together to create http://thecompassioncollective.org, which has raised millions for Syrian refugees and for homeless American youth (correction). The founder of said collective, Glennon Doyle Melton recently got married to Abby Wambach and I am fangirling...Especially because Abby had a sweatshirt on on instagram that said “Christian Mommy Blogger’s Wife” !!!!!!!!! https://www.instagram.com/p/BUHaLZAFUdo We get to talk in depth to someone who inspires me constantly who also happens to be my friend of 6 years, Koatzin Ashley-Cruz. Koatzin has been incredibly resilient through mental health struggles, paying for their education out of pocket for many years, and navigating a world that isn’t inherently friendly to them as an undocumented person. Koatzin received a bachelor’s degree from California State University, Dominguez Hills a few days ago, and I had to shine some light on this #IndigenousExcellence that they embody!!! Their instagram handle is @k0atzin. Today’s Science Says explores the topic of intuition. What it is, how it works, and when it’s a great idea or a not so great idea to trust it when making decisions.

Your Pep Talk this week revolves around the idea that the recovery makes the resume possible, in more ways than you can imagine. Get in touch! Subscribe! Review! Be merry!
